Taking Care of Yourself this Holiday Season

by Katie Frizzell - December 14, 2020

Have you ever experienced a “Blue Christmas?” Maybe something about the holiday season just makes you stressed or sad. Stress can increase around the holiday season because of heightened expectations, financial burdens, and busy schedules. One thing that may be causing you stress and worry is having to spend the holidays with difficult family members. You might be thinking, “How will I make it through dinner without going off?” Another reason you may experience sadness around this time of year is that you are missing a loved one that you used to spend the seasonal times with. The key to making it through the holiday season, no matter what is getting to you, is practicing self-care.
